Not that I'm one to be confused by big words, but I was describing my beliefs to somebody the other day and she replied, "Well if that's what you believe then you are Eclectic." I tilted my head a bit on that  Huh . I've considered myself agnostic for over a decade, yet I believe wisdom can be gained from all religions. Just when it comes to a question of the supernatural, that can neither be proven or disproven. So I went home, did some research, found there is a large Eclectic movement prodominately amoung pagans. This really suprised me, because I'm usually pushing Atheism, and, not to generalize, but pagan beliefs and atheist, at least by literal defination, is juxtaposed, as seen by the latter believing in no gods and the former many. So how can I be both? I am, at least philosophically, eclectic, though religiously I am agnostic. Therefore, using myself as an example, either Eclecticism is something all religions can find a home in or I'm in some sort of crossroads I have yet to understand.
